ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

  • Hello! My name is Michael. When I was three years old, my younger brother became sick with spinal meningitis. In the process, my brother became deaf with an almost complete hearing loss. This difficult situation provided a unique opportunity for my family and I to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). My brother was not sent away to a deaf or hard of hearing school. He grew up with us, his hearing family, and we were active in the deaf community.
  • As a police officer and federal investigator, I often used ASL to communicate with and interpret for witnesses, victims, and perpetrators. I decided to create ASL courses because it’s a useful and practical skill to have. Like learning any language, it opens your mind and creates the ability to communicate with a whole new group of people.

Transcripts

1. Course Introduction: In this course, you're going to learn how to sign lots of places around town. Is that it? No, of course not. You're also going to learn to sign days of the week. Personal pronouns in how to finger spell four-letter first names. So we're going to have different components and we're going to eventually the purpose is to put them together, to sign complete statements, questions, and many dialogues. In as we're going, we're going to pause once in a while and do review lots of reviewing testing. That's right. When I put my glasses on, I won't be talking anymore. We'll be communicated in sign language and we're going to boost your skills. Alright, so our goal is to be able to learn everything so we can put it together. Sine sentences, questions, many dialogues, put it into practice. Ok, here we go. 2. Learn | ASL Alphabet: Let's talk about the ABCs in American Sign Language. Jumping right in. Here we go to a, right. So we'll start with our hand like this. We're going to put our fingers together, curve them down. Now, push the thumb along, up to the side, right close to the side. That is in a. Alright, so now let's sign it two times. Here we go, a, a, alright, moving forward, let's do B. Alright, let's start with our handshape. Now fingers together for your thumb in front. Alright, so if we twist it, it looks like that B. Okay, so let's sign it two times. Here we go. B. B, OK. You may see some people signing a be like this, where they leave the thumb along the side. I sign a be like this where I put it in front. Okay. You'll notice there are variations in American Sign Language. And it happens. It's a WIV language. Okay, let's go to C. Alright, we'll start with our handshape fingers together and we're going to curve. So it is i c, right? This is really straightforward, right? So we have a c, c, once again. See, right, let's sign it a couple times. Here we go. C. C, Okay, let's go to D. Alright, so how do we form it? Well, we're going to leave our index finger up. The other ones are going to come down and connect with the thumb right from the side. It will look like this. Right? So we have, this would kinda looks like a D. A D. Once again, right there is your D. All right, so let's sign it a couple times. Here we go. D, right in the picture, they have it like this. I see more people just sign it like this. There may be variations. All right, but we have a dy. Dy. Okay, let's go to E. Alright, so hand like this, fingers together. And here we go, E. Alright? So the tips of the fingers are curved down and the thumb is kinda curved in. We have an e right in the picture. They go all the way down and they touch the top of the thumb. Alright, I've learned it in, I cited like this and E. You'll see the difference. There is lots of people do. Alright? So we have E. All right. Okay, let's do it cited a couple of times. Here we go. Ee. Okay. Okay, let's go to F, right here we go. Just connect the index finger with the thumb. Alright. You notice in the picture the fingers are tight like that. I sign it like this. And I've seen a lot of people cited like this. So we have f. Alright, so once again, like this, just connect index finger with the phone. Go like this. F. Alright, cited a couple of times. Here we go. F. F. Alright, let's do g. Alright. Let's make the handshape. G, alright, and easy way to explain this. Imagine you're trying to measure something or explain to someone how thick something is. So you'd be like this. It was this thick. Ok. So that handshape right there, just take it and turn it forward. Right now you have a G, right? You'll notice in the picture it looks like it's sign like this because you're looking at the inside of the hand. However, this is extremely uncomfortable, though, when people do sign it, they go like this, right? So you just sign and you show this part G. Alright? So once again, it's like this thick permanent forward, that is a GI. Alright, let's sign it a couple of times. Here we go. G. G, okay? Okay, moving forward, let's do h, Alright? And shape eight. Alright, so basically what we're doing is we're leaving our index finger and middle finger together up. Kind of like a you will get to that but the same shape as a, you know, we twist it so it's like this or we turn it forward and over, right? So it's like this. Now in the picture it shows you that it's like this. But once again, it's very awkward. This sign in aids like this because your body's not turned comfortably. So sine h like this, right? H, right? Once again, h. Alright, let's cited a couple of times. Here we go. H eight. Alright, moving forward to RI, OK, let's make the handshape. Here we go. I, alright, so it's just a pinky sticking up with the thumb along the front of the fingers at a curb down. Alright, once again, the middle three go down, the peaky stays up and the thumb curves in front. That is an eye. Alright, once again, I alright, let's sign it a couple of times. Here we go. I, I, okay? Alright, we're going to learn j. Now the hand shape is the same as in I, okay? But we're going to use the tip and you see the arrow, we're going to trace a little J in the air, right? J. J. Ok. So once again, I formed the eye and now use the tip of your finger and trace it j in the air. J. Alright, let's do a two times. Here we go. J. J. Ok, good, good. Alright, moving forward to K, right? Let's form it. Alright, that is a k. So a dropdown the pinky finger and the ring finger just leave him out. Now leave the index finger and the middle fingers spread apart. Ok, take the thumb and move it towards the middle of the fingers. Alright. And I mind pushes over, it's touching the middle finger more. Alright, so that is a k. Notice the index or the thumb in there. It's not perfectly in the middle. It's towards the middle finger, right? That is a k, right in the picture it shows a kind of close in. Fixtures aren't always perfect, right? So k, right? K. Alright, let's start it two times. Here we go. K, k. All right, good, good. Right, l is about as straightforward as it goes. So here we go. We have L. How do we form it? Well, the last three fingers curved him down and just leave it. If you've ever made the sign for loser, you already know how to make an L. L, Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. L. L. Okay? Alright, let's see, we have M, right? How do we make it? Well, we're gonna take our thumb is sticky between our pinky inner ring finger and then curb it down. Right? That's right. So we kind of have like the little nub of your thumb sticking out between ring finger in pinky finger. Right. So when we form it, thumb goes in there and then we bring it down, right. So make sure there are 123 fingers on this side of the thumb, right? Once again, m. Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. Mmm, m going to n. It's similar but the thumb is going to move over one finger. Okay. So what does that look like? Instead of putting our thumb between our pinky and a ring, we're going to put it between the ring finger and the middle finger. Bring it down. Right? N. N, right, twisted a little bit so you can see, right? So the m was over here, but the end is over here. So one finger moves over m and n, n. Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. N, n. Okay? All right, let's do, oh, nice straightforward. Here we go, starting from the base handshape. Now let's go like this and make, you know, it's an, oh, very straightforward. Alright. So oh, alright. Assign it two times. Super-ego. Oh, oh, All right, let's get to p, right? So P is basically a k which is tipped down. So how do we make the k Once again, well, get rid of the pink, Pinky and the ring finger. Take your thumb and put it between these two fingers at up, but press more against the middle finger. Alright, now take that and flip it down. Suddenly we have a p, right? P. Once again. Write p, And in the picture it shows you like that, right, where you're put. It's just awkward. Fellow resign and we just go p, right? P. P. Alright, let's do it two times. So we go sign with me. P, P. All right, let's review once again these two down thumb in, pressing more against the middle finger. Alright, and flip it down, right? P. Okay, good, good. Alright, the Q, Alright, the queue hand shape is very similar to the G hand shape, but it's just rotated down. So how do we make the G? Well, remember you're like All the book was this tech, I swear. The book was that thick. So that's the hand shape we're going to use right there. Okay. Now we're gonna tilted forward, that is the g. Keep going and that is the Q. Alright, so the hand shape is like this. Now just turn it down. Q, Right? It was this big, okay, that's the Q shape. Turn it down, alright, assign it two times and we go. Q. Q, right, you're probably not going to go. Q. It's not natural, and that's not how people really sign it. So it's q. Two, right? It might turn it a little bit, something like that. But q, right, with good. Well, let's go to our right. So let's start from our base hand position. And we're gonna get rid of our ring finger and pinky finger. Now we're going to cross our fingers, right? And now we're going to put the thumb in front. This thinking, Oh, you like our hope something's going to happen on you or I'm crossing your fingers behind your back like kids do and you actually lying or whatever in your fingers across whatever. That's the handshape, right. Just cross your fingers and stick your thumb in front, right. So the index finger is in front of the middle finger and there's an r. Right? So let's form it are. All right, let's sign. And a couple of times. Here we go. Our, our, alright, good, good. Let's move to S. S is basically just a fist. Alright, here we go. Make a fist. Put your thumb in front. There's an S colleague, put your dukes up. I am holding two S's. Alright, so S, once again, S make a fist for your thumb in front. 1 second. Right? So we have S. Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. S, s. So remember system-based, there's us. Alright, let's go to t. Alright, so remember m was over here, n was over here, and T is right there. Alright, T's probably the quickest and easiest one. Just put your thumb in between your index finger, middle finger clamped down, right, there's your tea, right? T, once again. T. Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. Okay, good, good. Moving to you are right. So here let's start with like this. Bring them together. What these two down with your thumb in, there is a, you write, you write u, u. I'll assign it two times. Here we go. You, you remember tied together because if you open them up, you have a V, convenient U, V right there. How do you make a V is just peace man piece, right? Or the number two. All right, b, b, remember openness, the V closed is the u, right? So V, alright, let's go to w, right open hand. Now we're going to use the thumb to pinch down the pinky finger, to hold down the pinky finger. And we're going to leave these three fingers up. And they're in the shape of a W, and it's w. Okay? So once again, W Bellevue might take some practice to get your thumb over there. Pinning down the pinky or practice makes improvement. Alright, so let's sign it. Here we go. W, W, right? Once again, use that dumb pin down the pinky, leave these three up, that is the W. But good. Alright, we have x, alright, so will go like this. Get rid of these fingers. But the thumb there. Right now, take your index finger and you're going to curve it down into a hook, like Captain Hook are, it's an X, X, right? So we can go straight to index finger like you're gonna point at someone. And now just turn it sideways and curve it down. X, right in the picture. The thumbs on the inside. And they're like turning like this. To tell you the truth. I'm not gonna say it's impossible, but I've never seen anybody put the thumb inside. I guess it's very possible there are variations. I put the thumb on the outside and that's how I've seen it because it's quite inconvenient to put it inside because you're yeah. So I put it out here but the hook is the same. All right. You're probably not going to sign it like that. The picture is great because it shows you the hand position. But when you're just signing, you're just gonna go x, write x, x. Alright, let's sign it, sign it with me. Here we go. X, x, right? So just remember our guess, captain hook, with the hook, so it's X. Alright, we're going to y. Alright, how do we make it? Middle three fingers, just put them down. That's it. Like hang loose man, write y. Alright, when you sign it, you're just going to go like this and show your palm, right? Show that part of the hand. Why? Let's do it two times. Here we go. Y. Y. Alright? Okay, z, nice and straightforward as well. Index finger. Just use your index finger and trace a Z in the air, right? Z, right. Remember how J we trace the DJ in the air. Now what the z? We're going to trace the z and do a quick, there's no need to go because it's just one letter, right? So z, Alright, let's do it two times. So we go z, z, OK. So that was the a, b, c's in American Sign Language. That's pretty cool. 3. Practice | ASL Alphabet: Okay, it's time for practice. Ok, so let's practice the ABCs. We're going to see two videos. The first video we'll be at a slower speed. The second video will be at a faster speed and we're going to sign the ABC is with the video. Okay, so I'm gonna say the ABCs out loud as we go. I urge you to see the ABCs out loud as we go because it just helps make a better mind-body connection and we can remember quicker. Alright, so let's stop talking and let's get to it. Here we go. A B C B E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y, Z, right? For Fabulous. Okay, so that was the first bead. Let's do it a little bit quicker. Alright, here we go. A B, C, D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y, Z. All right, what do you think? How did you do? What do you say we do the fast speed one more time. Right? Let's do it. Here we go. A B, C, D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y, Z. Alright, so if we need to go back and practice some more, that's fine. No problem. Okay. So great. 4. Explore | Four (4) Fingerspelling Rules: Okay, because this course has a lot of finger spelling, it's a good idea to know the four finger spelling rules. Okay, so let's start. Here we go. Number one, right? Use your dominant hand. Pay. In other words, finger spell or even sign, just sign with the hand that you're most comfortable with. Okay. So I'm right-handed for me, it's most comfortable to finger spell H-E-L-L-O with my right hand. Right. If you're lefty or even if you're a righty, but you feel more comfortable signing with your left hand. Go nuts. Alright, so use your dominant hand, or in other words, just fingers bell, sign with the hand that you're most comfortable with. Okay. So this is the same per finger spelling and assigning whatever you're most comfortable with. Because the goal is clear communication and being understood, right? Okay. Right. Let's go to rule number two. Okay. Sign in front of your shoulder, right. So think of it this way. Pretend there's kind of like a box here, like one of those old TV sets that thick and big, right. So there's an area right here in front of your shoulder and that's where you put your hand when your finger spelling. Alright, so if I'm gonna assign or fingers bell, h, e, l, l, o, see how it's here. It's in the box. And the reason is when you sign here, people can still look at your eyes, make eye contact, but still take in your hand signs right? In what you're signing. The whole idea is communication and respectful communication usually means you're making eye contact and taking in what people are signing. So if I sign like this, H-E-L-L-O, the farther I get up to the side, the more that people have to go. Right? They have to go back and forth to watch your hand and your eyes. So keep it in the box. Sign in front of your shoulder. Alright. So like about out here, you don't have to like go way back here where it's uncomfortable then it just is a headache for communication. Just, you know, right in front. H-e-l-l-o low. Right. So let's go to rule number three. Ok, double letters. All right. Even that word right there, TT, right. Repeat a little to the side, bays, so I'm right handed. So family, spell this word right here. Letter or letters I would go L, E, T, T, ERS. Did you see you see how I move the T, the second t a little bit to the side, alright? L e t, t e IRS. Alright, so you can slide, you can go a T, T. Maybe you can just move it up and down a little bit. T, t. But either way we need some movement in there because if I just go TT, i mean they can't hear me. Same TT so others watching my hand. And they're like, well, you spelled it wrong. Or two T's in that word. If you're left-handed, just go off to the side a little bit the other direction, right? L E T T E R S, right? Either way you keep it in the box. L E T, T ERS, letters. So let's do a little bit of practice. Why not? Right, so we have the name read or just the word read. Okay, so r e, e b, all right, r e d e is one E and then two e's r e d. We go, let's do Jennie. Okay, j sine wave, MY fingers, bow with me. Okay? J e n, n, y, c, the ends and n and n, j e, n and y. Alright, see what else we have. We have Billy, okay? B i l, l i e. All right. B i l, l e. Okay. Good, good, good. So remember double letters off to the side for the second one. Number four, okay, rule rule number four is don't bounce. Okay. So let me show you two versions of this name. Okay, so we have Henry, alright, so I'm going to finger spell it to different versions and you tell me which one is easier to understand. Okay. So here is version number one. Right? Henry, here is version number two. Okay. Do you notice it's easy, right? So if I'm bouncing, if I'm going h, e n r y, you know, I am filled with good emotion. I haven't been able to sign with someone for awhile. Saunders like yeah, my aides, e n, r, y. By good positive energy is wonderful. But my bouncing motions are a headache per whoever's trying to understand me. Right. So just, you know, the person is trying to take it in real-life, h e n, it's a headache, right? So the idea is to not bounce, right? If you go up and down a little bit, H E RY, not a big deal, but when you start bouncing and flying around, it becomes a big deal because it's a communication barrier and we're looking for clear communication, right? So it would just be h e n r y. Once again, h e n r. Why not eight? Edm RY now don't bounce. Okay. Oh, I guess I should saw a visual. If you bounce, it's dizzy and makes people dizzy because they're trying to follow you, they want to talk with you. They're thrilled. Deaf people are usually thrilled if you come up to them and you want to sign a like wow, another signer, Fantastic. Let's be clear what their signs, right? Don't make them busy with your H, E, R, Y. Ok. So we talked about the four fingers spelling rules. Let's just do a quick review. Use your dominant hand. In other words, use the hand that you're most comfortable with. Number two, sign in front of your shoulder. So pretend there's like a box here. Stick your hand in it and sign. Ok, double letters. Repeat a little bit to the side. So we're doing hello, H-E-L-L-O because we need to communicate it's to letters. Alright? And maybe the most important one for clear communication is don't bounce. It makes people dizzy. Okay, so those were the four fingers spelling rules. Wonderful. 5.

When you're communicating as you're going through the conversation, just remember the point in the same place whenever you referring to the person, right. He or she. Ok. So moving forward so far we have i, i, we have u, u, and we have He Xi, that person, single individual, wherever they are. And if they're not here off to the side, he she like that. Let's move to we. Alright, here's what it looks like. The index finger, one, to write, first one closer over here, second one over here. So two taps are two points, 12. Now I'm right handed, so I'm gonna start over here and go over here. If you're a lefty right, use your index finger. Start over here, go over here. Right, from this side. We other side. We we. Okay, good, good. Let's do they. Index finger, Of course. Now let's say there currently here they're present, right? And we can easily refer to them by pointing right. Now, we can't just go like that because that is he, she or the single individual, right? We can't do that. So we can still use user index finger, but we're going to arc. Alright? Arc. So they, the group of people, two or more people, we want to say they would go, they, if they're over there, we go. They write you see the Arkin. They, they if they're back there behind us, they wherever they are, if they're present, they okay. Let's pretend they're not present. What do we do? Well, it's the same as for he and she just sign off to the side. Alright. Little space over there. They you can choose a space over here, that's fine. They they okay. Something important. When you sign they make the arc do not go and front. If you want to mean they, because if you go in front like this, it means. You all big difference, right? So they needs to be off to the side, pretend there is an imaginary line in front of you, right? And if you want to sign, they do not cross the line. Ok. So after the sign after the sign Sure. Behind you. That's fine. That means day. But if you want to sign, you all might as well go to it. It would be in front, crossed the line, the invisible line. You all right, you all now if you're talking to a group over there, you all, you would turn your body and suddenly you lines right there. You all the groups in front of you just cross. Make sure you cross that line. You all right. So we just learned that index finger for you all go like that. Crossed the line. You are. Okay. Good, good. Let's go quick through and do a little bit of review. Right? I how do we sign i index finger pointing yourself. I write I write you Harvey sign you. You write single motion you wherever the person is. Turn if I'm talking with fret over here and you're like eavesdropping or looking on. They all friend theta u, right? Straight at the person, puts you, turn your body towards them. Allright t0 x0, individual person, that individual. How do we sign it? Index finger and point at them. Alright. Point at them. We are referring to them, right? Single motion. If they're not here, what do we do after the sign? Alright. He or she or that person. Ok. We how do we sign? We write double-tap 12. We we they How do we sign day? Well, we're going to arc up to this sign. Alright. If the people over there, we'll refer to them. They they if they're over there, they what if they're not here? What do we do? Well, we sign up to the sign. They they okay. So what do we remember? But they so it doesn't become u. All right, they needs to be off to the side, invisible line. They, they, alright, so how do we sign you plural, as in you all. What do you think? Pass the line, right, the invisible line. You, you as in you plural, you all, you. Okay? So we went right through all the personal pronouns. Important thing to remember, the hand shape is the same for all of them. That's going to save you some time thinking, okay, what handshape there it is. Just use the number one, end , or refer, indicate. However you need to do it. Ok. This was personal pronouns. Sounds pretty good. 71. Explore | Statements: In English we might say something like, I'm going to the library on Tuesday. Well, in ASL we can sign. Okay. Let's break it into parts and let's do it.

Well, I hope you see that we can basically switch the words around. We have the basic sentence structure, but we know so much vocabulary now that we can do switch it around and sign for different situations. All right, let's move forward. 72. Explore | Questions: In English, we might ask, is Lisa going to school on Friday? Well, in ASL, we can sign. Okay. Let's break it apart. Here we go. Friday. How do we assign Friday? Friday, right? Finger. Spell the name right? Lisa. Alright, let's do it again. Lisa. Go to go to go to right. And the sign for school. Do you remember? School? School. Okay. Now this is where it gets a little bit more interesting. We need to make sure that we communicated as a question. Alright, if we don't, it would just be a statement right? Here's what it looks like as a question. You watch me, we'll compare question with statement. Here we go. Okay, that's the question. Now watch this statement. Cpu can pick up the difference. Here we go. Okay, so when we get to the end of the sentence and we're signing School when it's a question now this is a yes, no question. You know, is Friday is Lisa go into school on Friday? Well, it's either yes or no. I suppose you could say maybe, Right? So in yes, no questions in ASL at the end of the sentence, raise your eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. Have an inquisitive look on your face. You want to know something, right? The information you're trying to figure it out. So once again, here we go. Alright, I'm gonna freeze for a moment. The see the look in the palm like this. That's how we communicate. A yes, no question. All right. So sign with me. Let's do it. Alright. I rose up, lean forward, inquisitive, look on your face. Okay, let's do it again. Alright, let's contrast that with the statements. So sign with me here, we're going to do it. Okay, so at the end of the sentence, we can do maybe a little affirmative nod. But what we're not doing is we're not doing this right, because we just need a statement. Alright, back to the question. That's what we're focusing on. Let's do it. Okay, good, good. So let's practice. Here we go. Sign with me, sign with me. All right. You may notice that when I sign Friday, Lisa, go to I'm not raising my eyebrows. It could just be a sentence, but it could just be a statement. But once I get to school, that's when I start going like this. If you want to go like this to the whole sentence, that's fine. It's kind of maybe a waste of energy and maybe an ineffective use of energy because it's unnecessary. You can just sign it or make the facial expressions at the end school. Alright, let's do it again. Here we go. Alright, Let's change some of the information because we know lots of vocabulary. Let's ask Saturday, Lisa go to school in English on Saturday, is leases going to school, something like that. Alright, let's sign it. Here we go. Saturday, Lisa. Go to school. All right.

They write you remember to ARC, don't go in front because that is you. All right. So they walk to mach two bakery. Alright, remember bake store. Ok, so now comes the interesting part. We need to communicate it as a question. Alright, so raise your eyebrows, lean forward. Inquisitive look when you sign bakery. Okay, let's do a practice with this whole sentence. Here we go. Again. All right, one more time. Today. They walk two bakery. Alright. Remember if we don't put up her eyebrows, lean forward, it becomes a statement, right? So the statement would look like this. Just kind of hanging out here. We're just sharing some information. If we want to ask the question. Ok, good, good. At C, We did this sentence. Let's change something. Here we go. Tomorrow we walk two bakery. Let's do it. Again. Here we go. Alright, I think I have one more sentence here. Yes, I do. Already in English, are you looking for a gym on Thursday? And you're going to see we're doing you as in you plural. All right. In other words, it could be. Are you all looking for Jim on Tuesday when it's a group of people, unless at least two or more people that I'm talking to her, you're talking to. So in sign language. Ok. Let's break it apart. Here we go. Thursday. Thursday, Alright? Now you plural. Remember you plural as in you. All. The important part here, the invisible line. Remember to cross it because if you do it off to the side, it means y. Now you all it means they write. They. So whoever you're talking to you all, if you have to turn your body to make sure you crossed that line, you all, that's what you do. So you're given a speech, right? You are, you, are, you throw. Okay. Look for right. And genome, like our jump ropes. And too little circles, bubbles, whatever. Alright, now we need to communicate a question. Raised. Eyebrows, lean forward. Alright, let's sign the sentence. Alright. Ok, let's see here, what do we have? Let's do the opposite. Now the question is, is this a statement this time? All right? And let's do the question a couple of times. Here we go. One more time. And let's change some information. Alright, Thursday you look for bank. And it's a question. Thursday you look for bank. Alright, so now we don't have you all anymore. We just have you're single motion. Okay. Here we go. Thursday, you look for bank. Alright, so when your finger spelling bank, raise your eyebrows, lean forward a little bit inquisitive. Look, you want to know Thursday you look for a bank. You have money. Okay. So we talked about making questions, raised the eyebrows, lean forward, inquisitive look when you get to the end of the sentence. Okay. 73. Learn | YES, NO, MAYBE: Here is the sign for yes.
